ISC schools would like to widen access to children, even if their families cannot afford the fees.
ISC schools give more than twice as much means-tested assistance as opposed to non-means-tested, totalling almost £464 million per year and representing an increase of 1.9% compared with last year.
There are 46,517 pupils receiving means-tested assistance. Nearly half of all pupils on means-tested bursaries have more than half of their fees remitted. Means-tested bursaries are worth an average of £10,840 per pupil per year.
Many of our schools have launched major fundraising programs to be able to widen access to children from disadvantaged homes.
Bursaries are valued at over £464 million per year
